Foreign aid leader’s visit focuses on UW partnership opportunities

As a Wisconsin native and UW alumnus, USAID Administrator Mark Green understands better than most the breadth of expertise that exists on the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus. He saw it as a law student, as a state representative and later as a member of Congress representing Wisconsin’s 8th district.

On Oct. 18, Green’s knowledge of UW–Madison’s academic range brought him to campus for a discussion about potential partnership opportunities between USAID and the university. Green has held the top post at USAID—the United States’ foreign aid and development—since 2017.

“I can’t think of any USAID interests where UW doesn’t have a subject matter expert,” said Green. “The issues where we have questions, you have answers.”
